Comprehensive Breast Care and Screenings
No woman enjoys thinking about it. But as a woman, you’re probably aware that early detection is key to surviving breast cancer, and mammography is the gold standard for detecting cancers in the breast before they are large enough to feel.
With Resolute Health Hospital’s mammography services, you’ll benefit from:
- State-of-the-art 3-D mammogram (breast tomosynthesis) technology
- Quick, flexible scheduling
- Beautiful facility with spa-like amenities to reduce the stress of getting a mammogram, such as custom pillow coverings to manage pressure and temperature
Mammography Breast Exams
A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breast. It can be used to find and diagnose breast cancer. Your doctor may order a mammogram if you have possible breast cancer symptoms, such as a breast lump, pain or discharge from a nipple. Screenings can also look for noncancerous or benign tumors and cysts before they can be felt. So while monthly breast self-exams are important, the American Cancer Society recommends considering routine yearly mammograms starting at age 40. (However, if you are at risk for breast cancer you may benefit from a mammogram earlier. Consult with your doctor to discuss earlier screening if you are at risk.)
At Resolute Health, we go out of our way to make your breast exam as peaceful and comfortable as possible. We understand that medical exams can be frightening and stressful. But you can rest assured that our caring and compassionate imaging team will provide you with an exceptional personal experience.
Resolute Health has invested in the latest state-of-the-art technology to give our radiologists a better view of your breast. Breast tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, provides much greater detail when compared to a standard 2-D mammogram. It can be used as part of your annual screening mammogram or as a diagnostic tool. 3-D mammography exams allow a radiologist to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in the flat image, as with conventional 2-D mammography, the radiologist can see the fine details that may have been hidden on a conventional 2-D exam. This may allow for earlier detection of breast cancer and may result in fewer callbacks for additional diagnostic imaging.
At Resolute Health, our goal is to make mammograms as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Schedule your mammogram at Resolute Health today!
